Brr. It's that cold and windy today that you wouldn't put a milk bottle outside.
Storm Barra is creating havoc today in Hibernia or the Emerald Isle. It been forecast to cause more havoc and most folk including myself are sat at home today.
I stayed in bed most of the morning and thought of Ted Hughes ' Wind' poem, read some emails and read blogs.
Then I Googled flooding in Bantry and Cork city and noticed there are lots of fishing boats sheltering and probably fishing in the bay which I can see from our kitchen window. I'm glad I'm not on the ferry this morning.
The wife said she had brewed up and I sat down to sample a lovely cup of real coffee from the cafetier. She makes a lovely brew unlike myself who always makes it too strong but it's an excellent home made laxative.😊
The wife produced a packet of Mcvitie's Bourbon biscuits. I attempted to rip open the packet open and she piped up:
"Pass them me!"
Then she proceed to unwrap the bit on the packaging that you easily tear. Out popped the biscuits. I don't think they are invented to be used by cavemen like myself.
There has just been a mighty wind gust and the wife shouted: " Bloody Hell."
I am waiting for the usual phone call:
"Have you still got electricity, we haven't?"
